    Default The Hess Trucks Back : C10 content

    Welp. Sold the wagon two months ago, wasn't doing anything with it and I had lost interest in it pretty hard. Pulled off the wheels and the WRC mirrors and still have those and a 2.5/5 speed for later endeavors. Told myself no projects for a while... Came across a 1970 Chevy C40, 350, 5 speed and a 2 speed rear :



    Very little rust, most parts from the C10-C30's are usable (and yes, doors come with it). Plans are as followed :
    -Chevy 6.0 or 8.1
    -Paint
    -Air ride
    24" Alcoas
    -Some sort of contraption on the back

    Essentially a cruiser since I've always loved big trucks. The 350 will probably get saved for ..

    The 1971 C10 long bed I picked up super cheap from the same owner. So cheap I won't say. It's got a 307 with a spun bearing and a 3 speed. Needs Cab floors and rockers but I could care less lol Bed is shot as well.





    PLans are :
    -Yank the bed and Cab and get the rust on the cab fixed
    -Use the 350 from the C40 (if I can't, well I'll just drop in a 5.3)
    -Find a new bed
    -Air Ride
    -Some nice 15's
    -Something special for the bed

    Both trucks have similar goals which I think are all obtainable. Haven't been this excited about anything since i got engaged Should be a good time. I'll be updating here and on my IG @belfastbuilt ( a little side thing I got going on, Thanks Abbitt for the stickers ! lol).

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    Because I can't stay off craigslist..scooped a set of 16.5x10 wheels. Not sure what my plan is or what they're going on, but for the price I'd be stupid to say no.

    MIGHT be moving the c40 in favor of a square body. We'll see if the prices are right lol Truck stuff is fun.

    the c10 will be getting a 4.8 vortec, wiring harness, ECU, everything. getting it currently situated in the garage and setting it up to be worked on starting when spring fully rolls around.

    C40 will be leaving come may. I had some big plans for it but one project is good for now and I'm super hyped for the c10 to be a solid cruiser with some flair.

    You can always find another C40. And it’ll put C10 progress in the express lane
